Karavali Ale B.V.Seetharam tries to misuse Rajdeep Sardesai’s name;gets a warning from Rajdeep Desai

Rajdeep Sardesai deserves kudos for stopping misuse of his name by blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam

Rajdeep Sardesai deserves kudos for stopping misuse of his name by blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam

Coastal Karnataka’s blackmail journalist B.V.Seetaram (already arrested multiple times for harming communal harmony and ignoring court warrant/summons) was in Delhi begging for Congress ticket.

B.V.Seetharam visited Editors Guild of India President Rajdeep Sardesai’s residence unannounced on a weekend asking for help with Congress ticket. Furious Rajdeep Sardesai is said to have kicked B.V.Seetharam out of his house with a warning that he will be banished from Editors Guild of India membership.

Inspite of this humiliating experience,  after returning to Mangalore B.V.Seetharam boasted in his Editorial Columns that he met Rajdeep Sardesai and that Sardesai is his close friend. It is well known in Karnataka that B.V.Seetharam tries to misuse name of institutions such as Press Council of India (where he is listed as defaulter for not paying fees), Editors Guild of India to bring credibility to his blackmail journalism industry and also get Government advertisements.

B.V.Seetharam perhaps thought his false boasts and namedropping won’t reach faraway Delhi. Unfortunately for him, in this era of Internet news travels fast. B.V.Seetharam is already notorious in Delhi for his blackmail journalism and when Sardesai came to know about B.V.See misusing his name he again called B.V.See on phone and said to have severely admonished him again.

Knowing B.V.Seetharam’s past history and state of mind, he probably considers this bashing from Rajdeep as a badge of honour!

Press Council of India Defaulter since 2005 – B.V.Seetharam now complains to PCI about this blog – claims “misuse of Internet” LOL

February 12, 2009

B.V.SEETHARAM – TOPS DEFAULTER LIST ON PRESS COUNCIL OF INDIA WEBSITE. Is B.V.Seetharam misusing membership of PCI to further his blackmail activities?

B V Seetharam defaults of PCI for years but still complains to PCI

B V Seetharam is prominently displayed as "defaulter" on Press Council of India website since year 2005!

Perhaps even best of the comedy writers can’t script this or is this an indication how delusional a blackmail journalist becomes when he is exposed.

We are now in possession of an email sent by B.V.Seetharam to Press Council of India where he demands ban on this website. Comedy because for someone claiming to be champion of free speech and media,  B.V.Seetharam surely does not believe in practicising what he preaches.

B.V.Seetharam of Chitra Publications Mangalore – a notorious blackmail journalist fresh out of jail in a blackmail incident – publishes “Karavali Ale”,”Sanje Ale”, “Kannada Janantaranga”, “Canara Times”, disturbing communal harmony and peace in Coastal Karnataka, has been prominently displayed as “Defaulter” on Press Council of India website since year 2005 owing thousands of rupees to Press Council of India.

Even other journalists including Karnataka’s most popular journalist Ravi Belagere  dissociate themselves from B.V.Seetharam’s style of blackmail journalism.

And in an unprecedented protest in Mangalore, thousands including women and children came out openly to protest blackmail tactics of B.V.Seetharam recently.

But without any shame B.V.Seetharam and Karavali use the fact that they are member of Press Council of India to boast how this rag is a “genuine” newspaper and get advertisements from government institutions to subsidize their blackmail journalism.

We had covered it in our earlier blog post long time ago on this blog (read “Karavali Ale tops Press Council of India Default List”) and one can even now visit Press Council of India website to verify it (http://presscouncil.nic.in/defaulters.htm)

B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale

Press Council of India defaulter B.V.Seetharam complains to PCI about the blog and sees “misuse of Internet” for exposing his lies out in open

Since when Blogs come under the purview of Press Council of India? What jurisdiction does PCI have on websites which can be hosted in any country in the world?

One has to pity B.V.Seetharam for not knowing even basics of journalism or blogging!

Irony of B.V.Seetharam demanding muzzling of blogs

Even if we discount this feudal journalist’s state of mind after enjoying his stay in variety of Karnataka jails (ordered by various Karnataka Courts), B.V.Seetharam who boasts about “Freedom of Press”, “Freedom of Media” is now complaining about a medium of free speech like this blog. Very ironic indeed.

For years this blog has exposed B.V.Seetharam and his blackmail journalism to whole world with documentation. We even carried interview of Bhojaraja Shetty, a blackmail victim of B.V.Seetharam where BVSeetharam demanded 1 Lakh Rupees to not publish a concocted story. That post remains one of the highest viewed post on this blog with hundreds of people visiting it daily to know more about B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail journalism.

B.V.Seetharam’s double talk

How can someone like B.V.Seetharam who claims immunity from courts, police, his victims under “Freedom of Press” umbrella, now complain about a blog which is exposing his misdeeds?

As usual B.V.Seetharam stands exposed in front of the whole world.

*****

Are you a victim of B.V.Seetharam and his band of blackmailers claiming to be “reporters”, “journalists”? Are you sick and tired of inaction of PCI in managing blackmail journalists? Are you tired of complaining to Press Council of India? Share your stories or send them over to udupipressvictim@gmail.com for publication – your identity will be kept confidential if you so desire.

Help the country by exposing this blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam and also campaign for reforming PCI which many claim is totally ineffective in dealing with blackmailers like B.V.Seetharam.

MANGALORE : Unprecedented protest against blackmail journalism of Karavali Ale / B.V.Seetharam

January 14, 2009

“ಕರಾವಳಿ ಅಲೆ”, ಬಿವಿಸೀ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ಮಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಭಾರೀ ಪ್ರತಿಭಟನೆ

Frustrated public protest against blackmail journalism of B.V.Seetharam and Karavali Ale in Mangalore

Mangalore and Coastal Karantaka are not new to protests. But this protest was different – in an unprecedented protest, people were protesting against a “newspaper” Karavali Ale and its “Editor-in-Chief” B.V.Seetharam.

Perhaps for the first time in the history of Coastal Karnataka  and Mangalore, several hundred people including many women and children came out in street to protest blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam and his newspaper “Karavali Ale”.

While few long distance patriots sitting out in places like Houston and some in media are trying hard to protect (like D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN who falsely attirbuted reason of arrest to RSS) their fellow media man B.V.Seetharam without knowing facts of the case, it is clear that public in Coastal Karnataka have had enough with B.V.Seetharam’s style of blackmail journalism.

People protesting against Karavali Ale first conducted a silence march and then shouted slogans against blackmail tactics of B.V.Seetharam and “Karavali Ale”.

****

“KARAVALI ALE” and B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail victims include people of all religions

Protest in Mangalore against newspaper Karavali Ale and its blackmail editor B.V.Seetharam

JAN 13 2009:Protest in Mangalore against newspaper Karavali Ale and its blackmail editor B.V.Seetharam

One has to note that people cutting across religious lines have been victims of Karavali Ale and B.V.Seetharam – so this is a truly secular public outrage in a region sharply divided along communal lines.

***

Even a magazine like “FRONTLINE” acknowledges this in article about B.V.Seetharam in its latest issue.

Excerpts:

Karavali Ale was targeted by the public because it had been publishing articles against prominent Hindu religious leaders as well as Christians and Muslims for the past four to five years. He termed the attacks against the distribution network of the newspaper a ‘‘public revolt’’.

“The circulation of the newspaper fell by more than 50 per cent in December. If Seetaram’s allegations are correct, why haven’t any of the other local newspaper establishments stood by him?”

This is not the first time that the newspaper has ruffled feathers. In several of its reports, there is only a thin line between evidence-based journalistic critique and rhetoric that can be interpreted as being defamatory. Its style is a no-holds-barred kind, and it does not hesitate to make personal attacks.

****

As usual we can expect total blackout of this protest by Main Stream Media while a protest by few (less than a dozen) leftist buddies of Seetharam can get National Coverage (see CNN-IBN coverage and other coverage of a protest againdt BVSee’s arrest in Bangalore). As expected media faternity is very close knit when it comes to saving skin of one of their own.

Rights of common people somehow is less important than a blackmailer like B.V.Seetharam who blatantly ignored court summons like a two bit common criminal? and was arrested on a non-bailable warrant issued by a court?

Is suffering Bhojaraja Shetty and family is going through because of reckless blackmail journalism by B.V.Seetharam and Karavali Ale is somehow less important? B.V.Seetharam is now faking illness (like common criminals do) is enjoying five star luxury in hospitals – paid and taken care of by us tax payers. Something to think about….

Ravi Belagere on blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam:”No one in Karnataka media is bothered about BVSee’s arrest except few hardcode leftists”

Ravi Belagere - Karnataka's Number 1 Journalist

Ravi Belagere - Karnataka's Number 1 Journalist has some advise for B.V.Seetharam

There is absolutely no threat to freedom of media in Karnataka – Ravi Belagere

Karnataka’s number one journalist Ravi Belagere writes in Hai Bangalore on B.V.Seetharam’s arrest.

Some excerpts:

  • There is absolutely no threat to freedom of press in Karnataka
  • Seetharam has made it a habit to defy courts and he has only himself to blame
  • B.V.Seetharam himself is responsible for his current situation
  • B.V.Seetharam is jealous of Vijaya Karnataka because Vijaya Karnataka newspaper’s popularity resulted in decline of Karavali Ale’s circulation.
  • Police had no other option but to arrest B.V.Seetharam as otherwise police faced contempt of court case.
  • No one in Karnataka mainstream media has bothered about B.V.Seetharam’s arrest because most of them were victims of B.V.Seetharam’s yellow journalism.
  • If B.V.Seetharam makes it a habit to go to jail every year, how long can we journalist support him for problems created by himself?

“ಹಾಯ್ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರ್” ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯ ಜನಪ್ರಿಯ ಸಂಪಾದಕ ರವಿ ಬೆಳಗೆರೆಯವರು ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀ ಬಂಧನದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಬಹಳ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಮುಖ್ಯಾಂಶಗಳು:


* ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಇವತ್ತಿಗೂ ಮುಕ್ತ ಪತ್ರಿಕೋದ್ಯಮ ನಡೆಸುವ ವಾತಾವರಣವಿದೆ.

ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದ ಮಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಹೇಳುವುದಾದರೆ ನಾವು ಸಂಪಾದಕರ್ಯಾರು ತೀರ ಜೀವ ಭಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಆದರೆ ಕುತ್ತು, ಆಪತ್ತು ಬಂದಿರುವುದು ಸದ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಅವರೊಬ್ಬರಿಗೇನೇ.

ಉಳಿದೆಡೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಆದಂತೆ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರ ಹತ್ಯೆಗಳೂ ಆಗಿಲ್ಲ.

ಗೃಹ ಸಚಿವ ವಿ.ಎಸ್ ಆಚಾರ್ಯರು ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರೊಬ್ಬನನ್ನು ಕೊಲ್ಲಿಸುವ ಮಟ್ಟದ ರಾಜಕಾರಣಿಯಲ್ಲ

ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀತಾರಾಮ್ ತಾವು ಅಂದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದೇ ಸರಿ ಎಂದು ವಾದಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಆ ವಾದವನ್ನು ನೀವು ಒಪ್ಪಲೇಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ಹಟ ಹಿಡಿಯುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಫಜೀತಿಯಾಗುವುದೇ ಅಲ್ಲಿ. ಹೀಗಾಗಿಯೇ, ಬಿ.ವಿ. ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಒಂದು ವರ್ಷದ ಅಂತರದಲ್ಲಿ ಎರಡು ಸಲ ಜೈಲು ಕಾಣುವಂತಾಗಿದೆ.

ಇದರಲ್ಲಿ ಪತ್ರಿಕೋದ್ಯಮಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದೊದಗಿದ ಗಂಡಾಂತರವಾಗಲೀ, ಆಪತ್ತಾಗಲೀ ಏನಿದೆ? ನ್ಯಾಯಾಲಯದ ಮಾತೂ ಮೀರುತ್ತೇನೆಂದು ಹೊರಟರೆ ಹೇಗೆ? ಇಷ್ಟಾಯಿತಲ್ಲ; ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಬಂಧನವನ್ನು ಮಂಗಳೂರಿನ ಯಾವ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯೂ ಖಂಡಿಸಲಿಲ್ಲ. ದಕ್ಷಿಣ ಕನ್ನಡ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರ ಸಂಘವೂ ಖಂಡಿಸಲಿಲ್ಲ. ಏಕೆಂದರೆ, ಅವರೆಲ್ಲರ ವಿರುದ್ಧವೂ ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಸತತವಾಗಿ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಆದರೆ ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಇಂಥ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳನ್ನು ಕರಾರುವಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ವರ್ಷಕ್ಕೊಮ್ಮೆ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಜೈಲಿಗೆ ಹೋಗುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಅವರಿಗೆ ಕೋಳ ಹಾಕಿದಾಗಲೆಲ್ಲ ನಾವು ಖಂಡಿಸಲು ಹೊರಟುಬಿಟ್ಟರೆ ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಕೊನೆಯೆಲ್ಲಿ, ಅರ್ಥವೆಲ್ಲಿ? ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಅವರ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯನ್ನು ಯಾರಾದರೂ ಬಿಡಿಸಿ ನೋಡಲಿ. ಅದರಲ್ಲಿ ಅತಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಬೈಯಲ್ಪಟ್ಟವರು ಇತರೆ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರೇ ಆಗಿರುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಅವರ ‘ಕರಾವಳಿ ಅಲೆ’ ಮತ್ತು ‘ಜಯಕಿರಣ’ ಎಂಬ ಎರಡು ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗಳ ಕದನವನ್ನು ಕರಾವಳಿಯ ಜನ ಎಷ್ಟೂಂತ ಓದುತ್ತಾರೆ? ಎಷ್ಟು ದಿನ ಅಂತ ಓದುತ್ತಾರೆ?

ಇವತ್ತಿನ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿತಿಯೆಂದರೆ ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಅವರ ಹಟಮಾರಿತನದ ಪರಿಣಾಮವಾಗಿ ಅವರದೇ ವರದಿಗಾರರು ಕೆಲಸಬಿಟ್ಟು ಹೋಗಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಬೇರೆ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗಳಿಗೆ, ಛಾನಲ್ ಗಳಿಗೆ ಸೇರಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಒಂದು ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗೆ ಮಾಡಲು ಬೇಕಾದಷ್ಟು ಕೆಲಸವಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಬರೆದಷ್ಟೂ ಸುದ್ದಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕುತ್ತದೆ. ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ತಮ್ಮ ದೃಷ್ಟಿಕೋನ ಬದಲಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲಿ. ವಿಶಾಲಗೊಳಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲಿ, ಪದೇಪದೇ ಜೈಲು ಸೇರುವುದನ್ನು ಅವರು ಹೋರಾಟ ಅಂದುಕೊಂಡರೆ, ಅದು ಅವರ ಮತ್ತು ಅವರ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯ ಆರೋಗ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯದಲ್ಲ.

    B.V.Seetharam case : CNN-IBN Reporter Threatens this blogger for exposing factual error in his report. “Freedom of media” applies only to Main Stream Media and not bloggers?

    January 13, 2009
    CNN-IBN Logo

    CNN-IBN

    D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN misguides viewers by spreading false news to cover his friend blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam

    D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN

    D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN has threatened Udupi Press Victim for exposing factual errors in his report on this blog.

    D.P.Satish writes:

    Nobody has given you the rights to tarnish the image of an honest and professional journalist in the name of exposing blacksheeps (sic) in the media. Now, either you prove all charges against me or tender an apology.If you don’t publish my reply and remove post about my role, me and my channel CNNIBN will be forced to initiate criminal proceedings against you and your blog site. Our company (A Time Warner venture) is well within its rights to file cases against you in a Delhi court and a court in the USA under IPC, CrPC and Cyber laws of both India and America.

    You asked for proof and here you have it.

    Ok let us take this one step at a time.

    D.P.Satish’s report telecast on CNN-IBN whose transcript is available on CNN-IBN website (http://ibnlive.in.com/news/newspaper-editor-held-for-criticising-rss/82244-3.html) says the following:

    Misleading headline in CNN-IBN

    Misleading headline in CNN-IBN

    D.P.Satish may disown the headline, but a reporter’s name is right below the headline how can one claim innocence?

    D.P.Satish may say he is telecasting what B.V.Seetharam told – but isn’t it the duty of journalist to provide both side of the story or at least make it clear in the heading that story subject said so?

    There are two factual errors staring at anyone who has followed arrest of blackmail “journalist” B.V.Seetharam.

    • D.P.Satish’s headline says “Editor” – B.V.Seetharam is neither Editor or Reporter for “Karavali Ale” by his own admission. He has submitted affidavit to this effect in the court (different matter BVSee is doing that to send some bakra Editor to jail in blackmail / defamation cases)
    • D.P.Satish’s headline indicates BVSee was arrested for writing against RSS – this is false. BVSee was arrested per a non-bailable warrant issued by Hon’ble Judge in a District Court.  Also it is not clear at all that BVSee said so as D.P.Satish claims.  If that was the case headline would have been in the lines of “Journalist claims he was arrested for writing against RSS”.

    These are the facts.

    D.P.Satish never bothered to check other side of the story where an innocent person Bhojaraja Shetty was painted as a rapist in B.V.Seetharam’s newspapers just because Mr.Shetty refused to bow down to BV Seetharam’s demand for 1 Lakh Rupees.

    Click here for Bhojaraja Shetty’s version of events leading up to arrest of blackmail journalist.

    So to conclude, we stand by our earlier post exposing D.P.Satish’s unethical, if not lazy reporting.

    We will be happy to modify the post as requested by D.P.Satish, provided:

    • Mr.D.P.Satish modifies the heading on CNN-IBN portal to reflect facts OR
    • Telecast other side of the story – where an innocent poor teacher was portrayed as a rapist by B.V.Seetharam in his newspapers just because Mr.Bhojaraja Shetty refused to bow down to 1 Lakh Rupees demand by B.V.Seetharam.

    Bhojaraja Shetty’s Press Conference on YouTube:

    B.V.Seetharam's blackmail victim Bhojaraja Shetty speaks in a Press Conference in Udupi

    B.V.Seetharam's blackmail victim Bhojaraja Shetty speaks in a Press Conference in Udupi

    From UdupiChannel, here is YouTube video of Press Conference in Udupi where victim of BVSeetharam, Bhojaraja Shetty explained his side of the story. Check from 6:00 (Video is in Kannada).

    Mr.Satish, we’ve made it easy for you – you have the video footage below, you have other side of the story, you have the sound bytes (albeit in Kannada).

    ****

    On a related note isn’t it odd to see a MSM (Main Stream Media) reporter name dropping CNN, Time Warner, USA etc and such in his bid to cover errors in his reports? Are bloggers supposed to fear Time Warner or USA etc?

    It is very ironic that D.P.Satish who himself maintains a blog (http://ibnlive.in.com/blogs/author/237/dpsatish.html) is now threatening freedom of expression of a fellow blogger. 

    Also begs a question – is freedom of press an exclusive domain of “traditional” or “Main Stream Media” journalists?

    ****

    And as far as Satish’s threats – he can silence a blog using his corporate muzzle power, but backups of this blog are ready to go on servers of Russia, Spain and Korea should Satish goes ahead with his threats. ಸತೀಶ್ ಅವರೇ, ಒಂದು ವಿಷಯ ತಮಗೆ ತಿಳಿದಿರಲಿ – ಈ ಬ್ಲಾಗಿನ ಪ್ರತಿಗಳು ರಶಿಯಾ, ಸ್ಪೇನ್, ಕೊರಿಯಾ ದೇಶಗಳ ಸರ್ವರುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಸ್ವಿಚ್ ಒತ್ತಿದರೆ ಸಿಗುವಂತೆ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆ ಮಾಡಲಾಗಿದೆ. ತಾವೇನೋ ಈ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಬಾಯಿ ಮುಚ್ಚಿಸಬಹುದು – ಅದಾದರೆ ಪ್ರಪಂಚದ ಬ್ಲಾಗೋಸ್ಪೀಯರುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ, ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಅಗ್ರಿಗೇಟರುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ, ಗೂಗಲ್ ಹುಡುಕಾಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತು ಇಂಟರ್ ನೆಟ್ಟುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ತಮ್ಮ ಹೆಸರು ಅಜರಾಮರವಾಗುವಂತೆ ನೋಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತೇವೆ.
